THANKSGIVING WEEKEND THREAD | Frozen 85.25 3-Day, 123.75 5-Day. Thanksgiving record! | KO 27/41.7, FvF 13.2/19, ABDITN 11.8/17.3, Q&S 11.7/15.8 | BLACK FRIDAY SALE UNTIL SUNDAY - GOLD ACCOUNTS 25% OFF

Recommended Posts

I knew that disappointing OW number was deflated by the 5-day, but seems I didn’t appreciate by how much. 300M+ 10-day is very strong. Record animation 10-days so far as I can tell:

TLK 352M 

I2 350M

F2 ~310M?

Dory 286M

TS4 238.7M

TS3 227M

 

Also Catching Fire which opened more than 20% above F2 in the same weekend has “just” a 296 10-day.

Frozen 2 was going to do well this Thanksgiving..not sure why anyone doubted that.

 

And what's your explanation why a mid-budget mystery movie like Knights Out is breaking out? According to you, these are exactly the type of movies that NOBODY watches at theaters anymore.

F1 109.4M 291M ... added more than I2's 258

 

Also Catching Fire which opened more than 20% above F2 in the same weekend has “just” a 296 10-day.

Added approx amounts those moves added after the 10-day period. Also added Frozen1 to indicate was a behemoth it was in legs.

I said it multiple times...while I am very happy with these huge numbers for F2, they're not surprising. It exploded practically everywhere but the US, which only meant that people were waiting for Thanksgiving. 

 

If it is able to hit $130m for the 5-day, then it's easily going to pass $500m IMO.

Probably because Thanksgiving doesn't  have any significance anywhere else.

Let's say:

 

$24.2m Wed

$17m Thurs

$38.5m Fri

$39m Sat

$26m Sun

 

$144.7m 5-day

 

Holy shit, there's no way it'll miss $500m with that kind of number. I'm afraid I'm being too optimistic but if it ends up holding surprisingly well today...then these numbers are achievable.

I never said nobody watches such films in theaters, its that audiences are more willing to skip over them and wait for Netflix...

 

For every KO though there are a dozen films like it that dont do well though....

 

I would request to find a post where i said KO would not do well because unlike many other mid budget films that failed so badly, any rational person could realize the buzz around KO made it stand apart.

130 million opening weekend is disappointing for Frozen 2? I simply don't get that at all. That makes no sense to me.

2nd weekend of near 100mn will show that it was. I know it was pre-holiday affect it faced, I totally understand that but saying 130mn is ok for biggest animation brand is nayy.

 

In a normal weekend, it would have easily done 170, may be even blasted I2 record.

 

Despite the number looking low in weekend, I stand to not melt till 2nd weekend, which on expected ground looks great.

I think people assumed Frozen was the biggest brand out there it should open like Lion King however people forget its the holiday season and that Frozen 2 will likely cakewalk past 500 million even with a 130 million weekend.

Frozen 2 in the summer would have opened $150M+ easily. But anyways Disney knew what it was doing when moving it up one week from Thanksgiving.

KO ($5m True Wedesday based off of @Jedi Jat's final numbers) is doing well. If it follows 2016's Allied ($2.1m True Wednesday), it would be at $40.7m in its 5-day portion ($44.37m if you include previews).

It's always fascinating to see how the calendar affects the box office. Frozen II looks to be smashing the highest second weekend for an animated film despite opening $52 million lower than the Incredibles 2.

Knowing that Beauty and the beast 2017 opened to 174 million,can make you think it’s disappointing.

This. No way it only does only 35M like Deadline projects. LOL. I'm seeing it tonight. Buzz is through the roof.

That film was marketed brilliantly though, and you could feel that there was an anticipation for an adaptation of it
